Couldn't do a couple of the moves without pushing off the right foot, which was too painful.

Awesome route at the end of the day. Glad I had enough in the tank for the top!
Jus - Lead O/S - 29/Jun/13

No as good as it's neighbours but worthwhile. Tricky top - bit of a desperate slap required to save the on-sight.
quiffhanger - Lead O/S - 26/May/13

Fell off top bulge
chiverstom - Lead dog - 06/May/13 with zappa, Sam Keyne

Too much to ask for an OS at the end of the day...shattered...good day! Bit choosy and a misleading finnish...should have had a RP go but was spanked!
ANC - Lead dog - 11/Sep/12

Tricky finish.

tom106 - Lead - 18/Jul/10 with ivan

Hidden - TR dog - 29/May/10

Cold and very windy. Found a sequence through all the moves and can now stick the moves at the top - just. Could be a go-er. Feels hard for grade.

Hidden - Lead O/S - 11/May/10

sam_cox - Lead O/S - 17/Apr/10
